Summary
=======

Bugzilla is a Web-based bug-tracking system used by a large number of
software projects. The following security issues have been discovered
in Bugzilla:

* The 'realname' parameter is not correctly filtered on user account
creation, which could lead to user data override.
* Several places were found in the Bugzilla code where cross-site
scripting attacks could be used to access sensitive information.
* Private comments can be shown to flagmail recipients who aren't in
the insider group
* Specially formatted values in a CSV search results export could be
used in spreadsheet software to attack a user's computer.

All affected installations are encouraged to upgrade as soon as
possible.
